  1. Anyone expert in using FR24 or any other FREE (!) aircraft tracking apps? Sometimes I see RAF Hawks, Hercs and choppers on it, but never Typhoons, and if I scroll to other countries no military stuff at all. I get the security aspect so maybe it’s not possible, which of course is fair enough. But if it is possible, how can I see things like German Tornadoes or Lakenheath F-15s on any of these apps?
  2. I stumbled upon this photo collection entirely by accident, and I recall that @Moa and a few others had a WIP and lengthy discussion on Norsemen with wheels, floats, or skis, so I thought some of these photos might be new or useful for modeling projects. What a variety of schemes and fits, and a couple of very nice closeup detail photos! Enjoy! Mike https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=0BpyA5Pp&id=7453481BFC711AC22B0798AB7DD80E3EA6B90485&thid=OIP.0BpyA5PpU6zwA5AOiAEDXQHaF3&mediaurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.norsemanhistory.ca%2FPhotos%2FCN190.jpg&e
  3. Does anyone have the camouflage pattern for the three colour Shorts Sherpa as used by the USAF in Europe?
  4. Hello all, just came across this site while trying to research one of the models that I am about to NOT win on ebay. Anyway, I used to build models a LONG LONG time ago, back when the planet was still young, and Revelle was considered a TOP builder (scary). Maybe they are again, but from the early days, I wandered into better quality makers (again, at that time) and have seen how far the world of modeling has become. I am shocked at all the extra's you can now find, from PE ( I worked with some early model PE, gave me more finger cuts than build satisfaction), decal replacement and resin repla
  5. Hi, Having delved into Britmodeller several times in the last five years and registered this is the first time I've actually inputted anything on the site. So it's a moment I have been looking forward to and one where I will not be disappointed as the site is fascinating and the help offered there is wonderful. Even though I have not inputted anything myself I have read other people's questions and answers and comments many times and these have helped me in my modelling. I was a regular modeller when a child and up to the age of sixteen, enjoying making chiefly Airfix aircraft and mi
  6. Hi again everyone. After the build of the Revell Pirate Ship, I felt like going back to doing something military again. Among my kits I had the Trumpeter British 155mm AS90 Howitzer so decided to go for that. On the whole I'm warming to other manufacturers as some seem to do as well a job as Revell usually do. it's quite a good kit to build, minimal flashing of parts and there is a lot of nice details. I bought the photo etch for it to just to add those very small details. I followed the tips already provided on other members builds to lessen the chance of errors and below are my a
  7. This is my Challenger 1 MK 3. It is mainly how it came from the box, with no alterations regarding accuracy except for the addition of PE parts. My knowledge of tanks is very limited and I didn't have the time to study the real thing in detail on the Internet, but I did attempt for the first time to create my own camo netting and tarpaulins instead of paying out a lot of dosh. Using poetic justice I did create some covers for the side accessory pods. Though it may not be real, I thought it looked ok. So, I hope you enjoy viewing the photo's and look forward to any comments, good or bad, a
  8. Welcome to my latest build. As I have been in the mood for building military kits lately, after building the Leopard tank and transporter, I thought it only fair to build something British. I settled for the Challenger as I have always liked watching it in action (on TV) and it seemd to be ahead of its time and stylish and will stand alongside the Leopard nicely. As before I am also using some photoetch but my patience with all of the tiny fiddly bits are testing me (I'm also fed up with super gluing my fingers together and to my head and tea cup). The actual kit is quite detailed re
  9. Miniart have four new items from the kits, figures and accessories ranges out this month including: A Personenwagen Type 170V Saloon and Soviet SU-85 Mod. 1943 with Crew. https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/blog/article/new-miniart-sept-2016/
  10. We've got three brand new plastic model kits & accessory sets from Meng Models this month for you and a few restocks of popular Meng kits.
  11. So some may be aware that I've embarked on a large, multi-diorama project (gulp) revolving around a fictional conflict in Japan. The planned dioramas include a M1151 Humvee, M2A3 BUSK Bradley, M1A2 TUSK Abrams and a Type 90. The Type 90 is the oldest kit of the group; the others were all bought within the last six months, while the Type 90 is several years old. It was sitting on a shelf in about a 90% completed state, with some parts unpainted or not attached. This particular set also came with the ammo loading crew and accessories, which I never used. So given the overarching theme it seemed
  12. While waiting for the electrical equipment to finish my Schlingmann HLF20 fire truck (here) I have been mulling over and over as to what my next build will be. I like to try new builds that I have not done before which offer a challenge to me and these are getting less and less to choose from (within my budget and available space). I could not find any stockists of any decent buses or fire truck kits so decided to go off the page and look at military again (having built the GTK Boxer here). My lovely daughters offered to put some money towards a new kit as a Fathers Day present and s
  13. This is my finished build of the Faun Tank Transporter and Leopard 2 A5 that many have followed in the WIP section. It is pretty much 'out of the box' with just a few mods to give it some atmosphere. I hope you enjoy and thanks for looking. More photo's available HERE
  14. There are some great new plastic model kits due for release in late-September/early-October from Academy and Roden, including the World War I era 1/72 British Vauxhall D-Type Staff Car.

  16. For those who followed this build here now comes the final pictures before the Leopard is put onto the Faun Transporter. This is my first attempt at weathering and I think I have a lot to learn, but I think I may have the basics ready for my next build. Hope you enjoy. More pictures HERE
  17. Hi For those who have followed the build of my Faun Tank Transporter here this is the chosen tank kit which I hope to use with the Faun. I have also bought the photo etch kit which is really for the Tamiya build but it seems to all match up with the Revell kit. I have made a small start cutting out some openings:
  18. Trumpeter's upcoming 1/16 German Sd.Kfz.186 Jagdtiger, is now available to preorder!
  19. So, this is my first planned diorama, and the first diorama I've attempted (actually, that's not true, I bashed one together out of balsa wood a long time ago ). But it will be the first diorama since I started putting more effort into my modelling. So far I only have the rough plan of it, and what will decorate it. Its one of at least three dioramas I have planned for this particular setting, which is a fictional conflict between China and Japan. This one will be set on a Tokyo street and features a Humvee crew meeting with a small group of JGSDF soldiers. Over the years I've picked up a num
